Review

"Revenger is classic Reynolds-that is to say, top of the line science fiction, where characters are matched beautifully with ideas and have to find their place in a complex future. More!"--Greg Bear on Revenger

"Reynolds has sketched in a galaxy littered with the relics of former civilizations (human and alien), with plenty left to the reader's imagination, and room for a sequel."--Library Journal on Revenger

"Reynolds' newest action-packed science fiction novel is a tale of sisterly devotion, heartbreaking loss, and brutal vengeance . . . Fans will enjoy the well-developed characters and detailed world building."--Booklist on Revenger

"A blindingly clever imagining of our solar system in the far flung future."--The Sun on Revenger

"By far the most enjoyable book Reynolds has ever written."--SFX on Revenger

"Basically, it's Treasure Island meets Moby Dick, set in space, with a nice Blade Runner-ish color palette and a cast of character worthy of a Terry Gilliam movie. I loved it."--Joanne Harris on Revenger

"An excellent, gripping piece of work."--SFANDF Reviews on Revenger

"A layered star-spanning odyssey filled with drama, adventure, and, yes, revenge."--AudioFile on Revenger

"A swashbuckling thriller--Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly--that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterization."
--The Guardian on Revenger


"Alastair Reynolds [is] one of the leading lights of the New Space Opera Movement . . . . Revenger is tremendous fun." --Locus --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
